the first top on my Road trip was Framington Ct The talk on the radio was about the latest from the Linda McMahon Senate campaign in Connecticut where in Scott Brown like fashion she is touting her bi-partisan support.
In a state were Democrats have a majority that might be necessary but the question is will it play in the state?
To find out I stopped at the Farmington CT. at a Linda McMahon campaign office
they had great swag
I couldn’t get official comments from the campaign but I did interview a fellow named Rob who was a volunteer, he was very solidly behind McMahon with Jobs as his #1 issue (if the video uploads before I’m done here I’ll include it in this post)
At the Farmingham
McDonalds Ray Kroc memorial media center I got a different reaction from a fellow by the name of Joe:
This dyed in the wool Democrat and MSNBC viewer express mistrust of both Linda McMahon and of Mitt Romney. He was particularly concerned with Romney’s flops over the years ( a weakness the Obama campaign frankly did a poor job exploiting) He also believes that subsidies to the bottom of the ladder will be more stimulative as the poor tend to spend most of the money they have due to necessity.
I asked him what he hoped from either presidential candidate if they won
If Obama wins…would like to see more jobs, he believe the market is opening up and sees improvements on the way.
If Romney wins he wants three things:
1. don’t touch medicare
2. Don’t touch SS
3. If he follow through on middle class tax cuts
As I suspect it will be Mitt’s race we’ll see how it goes.
My next stop will be one more McMahon local before heading toward NY 18 and Zilla of the resistance, I wonder if I’ll see more signs like this one on the way?
